Dumb and dumber: Ping says pulpol lawyers real winners in Sereno ouster
Some “pulpol” lawyers are among the biggest “winners” in the Supreme Court’s decision Friday to oust Lourdes Sereno as Chief Justice, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said.
In a tweet, Lacson said these lawyers would have exposed their stupidity had the impeachment trial of Sereno pushed through at the Senate.
“Ang biggest ‘winners’ sa SC decision ay ang mga abogadong pulpol na handa sanang magkalat ng katangahan sa impeachment trial na hindi na mangyayari dahil malamang hindi na ipadala ng House ang Articles of Impeachment sa Senado,” he said (https://twitter.com/iampinglacson/status/994789685544325121).
Voting 8-6, the high court ousted Sereno from her post, based on a quo warranto petition from the Office of the Solicitor General.
Supreme Court spokesman Theodore Te said the ruling on Sereno’s ouster is immediately executory.
